For some reason, when I hear this tag line, the image of a little child (samesung) thumbing his/her nose at a kid saying, "na, na, you can't stop me" comes to mind.

I would love to see Samesung just try a more mature marketing strategy whereby they emphasize features and benefits of their their products as opposed to:

1) making fun of Apple customers who are enthusiastic enough to wait in line (hell, I waited in line in the numerous times see the latest blockbuster movies, what's your point?)

2) using a lawsuit that Apple threw at them because they felt their IP was being infringed on?

That's all you got Sammy? They must not have too much faith in their products if they can't even tell us what they can do for us and why we should buy them.

Fuck Sammy.

If the GT is such a great product why are there so many companies giving them away as an incentive to buy another product?

I guess it looks better than having to sell them at $199 in a fire sale.

Samesung was the number 2 tablet vendor last quarter. They sold a whopping 1 million unit WORLDWIDE. HP was 3rd selling 900,000. This quarter Samesung will drop 2 spots to lose out to the Fire and Prime. Don't think Apple is to worried about Samesung.

Really?

Exactly, I'm not upgrading till I see if Apple is going to bring a bigger screen, the current screen is way too small. Android phones with larger screens are not bigger, Apple just has way too much of a black border.

'The Tablet Apple Tried to Stop' = good marketing imo. They should have kept it to that. Whether the perception is that Apple tried to stop it because it was a blatant rip-off, or as is implied - 'Its so good Apple got scared and tried to stop you from getting your hands on one... ' Samsung stands to gain. They should have made the Ad look like an Apple ad, however. You know, tasteful.

Sadly for Samsung though when there turned on the Android UI just looks awful.

I saw the iPad2 and Galaxy Tab 10.1 both standing portrait next to each other in a shop. I own an iPad2 and even I had to double take the two tabs when I walked passed them. The last person who used the Galaxy Tab left it on the icon grid and when I turned both screens on it just made me laugh.

They are not identical, but from the front the Galaxy Tab is just a slightly taller iPad.

IIRC, Samsung and HTC are usually the top in various markets. In some, they outsell Apple.

So many sour grapes in this thread. Companies do these stunts all the time, including Apple (Mac/Windows comparisons for one). Good on Samsung for capitalizing on their Australian legal drama.

I think they would be better served explaining why consumers should buy it. Tell us what's unique about your device, i.e., does it sync wirelessly with my Mac or does it have Airplay functionality? Since it has been accused of copying Apple, you'd think the answer would be yes.

1) It captures video in "full HD" but the display is actually a lower resolution than the iPhone by far.

Samsung Nexus screen : 1280x720 on a 4.6" screen. 316ppi
Iphone 4S screen : 960x640 on a 3.5" screen. 330ppi

I am sorry but the samsung display is NOT of a lower resolution than the iphone "by far", they both have over 300ppi
And WTF are you to tell me to stop posting....

Both phones have there ups and downs, but people walk in, see a bigger phone with 4G LTE and this hurts iphone sales, like it or not.

Did you happen to read what AT&T and Sprint said after the first weekend of selling the iPhone 4S? It's in direct contrast to what you're saying.

Well if you took the time to go to the Android market and look at the ratings, why didn't you take the extra 10 seconds to look at the actual reviews to explain why people had given it a poor review?

And then they get home, realize LTE won't be rolled out to even within 50 miles of where they live until 2014, actually start using Android, and beat themselves for their stupid purchase.

And how does it hurt Apple's sales when Apple STILL sells more iPhones than any other model of anything from anyone else? The larger screened LTE phones sold less than the iPhone 3GS, for heaven's sake.

Samsung doesn't earn Apple-style margins, however. They aren't at razor-thin Motorola margins, either, but Apple still commands a premium.

It remains to be seen how well the Galaxy Tab actually sells in Australia. It hasn't really caught on here in the US. All the non-iPad attention is on the Kindle Fire.

Hey... do you really think that anyone who buys an Android phone will be able to figure out that they are not getting LTE.

The total of all of them or each specific model? I'm assuming you meant no single specific model outsold the 3GS and just worded it awkwardly.

Yes.

I highly doubt he's an "investor".

Anyhow, I can't wait to see the 4th quarter results.

I think those numbers were by model.

The iPhone 4 was on top, then the 3GS, then the rest of the smartphone market.

depends how you define "big $$". To a child, $1000 is "big" money. According to all sources, Apple makes the lion share of profits in the phone market. Selling a million phones at a $2 USD profit each does not a lion share when Apple is making several orders of magnitude more per phone.

Samesung is everywhere, that is how they try to profit, providing cloner, non-innovative products at volume in all sorts of markets. they do not innovate or have any differentiating features.

You may want to be more careful with the crowd on these forums. On the one hand, you say this:

But then follow it with this contradicting assertion:

Prof. Peabody's statement grossly abused the phrase "by far":

However it's still accurate (albeit subjectively exaggerated - some call that "marketing" ), whereas your statement is not. The pixel density of the display you mention, and link specifications for, is not greater than the mentioned iPhone's.

It would have been more precise to say the iPhone's display pixel density was ~9.5% greater, but it was still accurate in terms of it's factual information.

I agree. But I wonder how/if Apple will respond to this very personal and aggressive campaign. During the Jobs era you could count on Apple to be very smart about this--doing something very clever and unexpected. This might be a good touchstone to see if any of Jobs' legendary Zen-like mojo has metastasized into the corpus Apple.

Samesung is everywhere, that is how they try to profit, providing cloner, non-innovative products at volume in all sorts of markets. they do not innovate or have any differentiating features.

From a link a few posts up, Samsung's latest quarterly profits from their telecoms division, "more than doubled from a year ago to a record 2.5 trillion won ($2.2 billion) and accounted for 60 percent of Samsung's total profit, offsetting a plunge in earnings from its bread-and-butter memory chips".

I think their phone sales could be considered successful. Certainly no Apple, but still fairly impressive considering they just entered the smartphone market little more than a year ago.

"Shipments of smartphones jumped 44 percent from the preceding quarter to 27.8 million units, up nearly four times from a year ago, according to research firm Strategy Analytics."

More like the Camry sells more than a Ferrari, and a Camry sells more than an econobox, but Android powers both Ferraris and econoboxes, which together sell more than Apple's Camry.


Using your logic, one could claim the AppStore to be McDonalds.

There is a huge difference between Samsung and a sicko serial killer.

Starting with the fact that Samsung was the victim of a big brute trying to kill THEM, and not the other way around.

It aint about losing one's edge. It's a matter of choice.



So long as Apple can maximize profits, they are doing the right thing. Apple does not believe that making SOTA hardware is the best path to maximum profits.
